How deep does the Fascist lie within us all, how deep does the blame culture continue? How much do we blame the other? and turn our faces away from what is before us, what we dare not look at. That is why fascism is so hard to defeat. it lies within our Shadow , our own ID, in the language we use in the projections and displacements we experience in our attitudes to the ones we not know or even wish to know.
In the last few weeks I have seen Fascism's shadow in Neath. in Swansea, on Facebook in newspapers, in the sneers on people's face. In the outlook that accuses others of bullying, of others as inspiring the attitudes taken, in the scapegoating that surrounds us. In the rounding on individuals who think differently and it frightens me and alarms me that so few see it. In obscene words written on pages, in the paranoid delusions of those who are afraid and are striking out at others in a vain attempt to hide what they feel, but will not say. Each generation battles with Fascism in its own way. Let us hope we can defeat it again.
